The first of the fertile eggs arrived yesterday morning.
The egg folks are quite generous! I ordered 19 eggs and he sent 30.
Then I heard from the lady who is sending the Astralorp eggs. She was supposed to be sending 12 and she sent 16. I had already ordered 6 Bielefelder eggs. Even in my panic stricken state, I could see that I had more eggs coming than my 41 egg incubator was going to hold. That’s not good.
What’s a girl to do? It took me about 10 seconds to decide that I needed the Brinsea Mini Advance Incubator.
This is the perfect little incubator. It only holds 7 eggs (yes, I’ll still not have enough space for all the eggs) and it will be great for hatching small amounts of eggs. I will never (stop laughing) have so many eggs to hatch at one time again!
I’ve read that when hatching eggs that were shipped through the mail, you’re lucky if 50% of them hatch. That’s what I’m hoping! 50% or less!
